Wounded EOD Warrior Event

Please read all of the information below on an upcoming Wounded EOD Warrior Event. I'm donating a copy of Proximity to the silent auction.

A Brave Warrior, Our Hero: TSgt Michael Williams

On August 2, 2009, Mike Williams, his wife Kristi and son Zachary all discovered how a single step could change their lives. While serving in the United States Air Force in Afghanistan, on a mission to disarm a roadside Improvised Explosive Device (IED), Mike stepped on a landmine and lost his left leg. He is lucky to be alive. His teammates rushed to his aid, grabbing a discarded wheelbarrow to help transport him to a helicopter for evacuation. Even as he was being evacuated, under direct fire, Mike was clutching his weapon and directing his team.
Today, Mike and his family are living at Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Washington D.C. He continues to improve at a fast pace and his spirits are high.
To honor Mike and others that have sacrificed so greatly for our freedom, we will be holding a Chili Dinner Fundraiser. All proceeds will be donated to the Wounded EOD Warrior Foundation. For more information on the foundation or to make an online donation, please visit
